Miss Sheltia Shafrnal Murray was born March 11, 1985 in Murfreesboro, Tennessee to the proud parents, Rodney and Brenda Malone Murray. Sheltia was a 2003 honors graduate of
Oakland High School and the 2003 runner-up of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Scholarship Fund of Rutherford County. She was a senior at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, studying to become a doctor from 2003 to 2006 until she passed away suddenly.
Sheltia was a very loving and affectionate person, taking the utmost pride in everything that she did. She was one who challenged herself and her peers on all levels. Sheltia had a caring, humble, and meek spirit, yet she also carried a “can-do” attitude, characteristics that are essential to a high school graduate entering college.
As sure as the sun causes the budding flower to continue to blossom, Sheltia’s life legacy will continue to live and carry on!!
